gtk xemacs tracking bug
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
This bug is for tracking the potential transition to
using the gtk+ toolkit for xemacs (instead of Xaw3d).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
When xemacs is built "--with gtk":
0) The gutter seems not to work - it is just a void space
1) XIM gets disabled
2) Widget buttons do not have labels displayed on them (eg customize)
contains some gtk xemacs patches.
(0) and (2) in comment 1 seem to be fixed in 21.4.16. :)
As quite a few of the bugs in comment 2 also I believe.
A more minor think I noticed now is new modelines tend to have some
unwanted pixels on the lower side: they can be cleaned away with C-l.
Also seems gtk support requires dl module support which is currently
disabled on ia64 (bug 123126).
This bug hasn't been updated in a long time and targets FE devel.
Could you please check that it still occurs with current FE devel and update
Not much has happened with the GTK port upstream, and I think a GTK 1.x port
would no longer be really desirable in the first place, and there are no GTK 2.x
efforts as far as I can tell. Closing as upstream, will open a new tracker in
the future in case something new pops up.
